That is the reality.
Those Africans who told u that LIED to u bro..they probably were playing on your limited views on the mindset of Africans when it comes to African Americans ..they do that a lot..they understand black people in this country have a very lost perception of Africans, they understand that a lot of blacks in this country see Africans as backwards poor people from third world countries who aren't on their level and like wooly said,in turn treat them like shit so they play on that to their advantage and make you feel like your view on them or their view on you was something they were programmed to preconceive when they first stepped foot here
take it from an African like myself
